Upon striking the antenna, a radio wave causes an R.F. current to flow in the primary winding or “Antenna Coil” of the R-F transformer; and since this current is of an oscillatory nature, it will induce a voltage of corresponding frequency on the receiver’s tuning circuit. Rectification of this signal by the detector makes the signal audible in the headphones.
